NEWMARKET Saturday 11th July 2020

A place to chat about anything thats not football related. Most of the threads in here are completely pointless which is why people keep coming back and back. As the forum title suggests, feel free to make any post you want on any subject you wish. It also has Adult jokes (so be warned) which is the other reason people keep coming back.

Whatever happened to Shergar .

Story of involvement in finding out the truth,by Peter Campling, Derek Thompson, and John Oaksey

Image


Derek Tommo Thomson ..a great read.

Derek Tommo Thomson ..a great read.
especially when he was also part of a team of three who helped to negotiate for the release of the kidnapped Epsom Derby winner Shergar.[1
part of the amazing story
Quote
"Back in 1981, two months after Aldaniti's win there was another stirring triumph, this time on the Flat as Shergar won the Epsom Derby by a record 10 lengths.

But two years later, after being retired to stud in the Republic of Ireland, the stallion was kidnapped.

Reports suggest the horse died after an IRA ransom plan went wrong but the mystery of what exactly happened remains and his body has never been found.

In a surreal turn of events, Thompson was called in - along with colleague John Oaksey and Sun journalist Peter Campling - to try to negotiate with kidnappers for the horse's release.

"We were told to go to the Europa Hotel in Belfast, which at the time was the most-bombed hotel in Europe during the height of the Troubles in Northern Ireland.

"I was told by this particular person who rang the hotel to drive to this place 30 miles outside of Belfast where we would be contacted again.

"On the way we got lost. We were going up a single road and five men with machine guns and balaclavas jumped out in front us and we all thought, 'Oh god, it's the IRA, they're going to spray the car with bullets'.

"One guy came round to my side, the front passenger seat, and made a motion with his gun to wind the window down.

"I was six inches away from a machine gun looking at me, a guy with two eyes and a mouth with a balaclava on and I was in the middle of the troubles in Northern Ireland and the guy said to me, 'Are you Derek Thompson?' What would you have said?

"We joke about it now, but at the time I said, 'Yes I am'. He explained they were the police and I said 'thank goodness for that'."

Lord Oaksey. another great read

The July Cup is a Group 1 flat horse race in Great Britain open to horses aged three years or older. It is run on the July Course at Newmarket over a distance of 6 furlongs (1,207 metres), and it is scheduled to take place each year in July.

It is one of Britain's most valuable and prestigious sprint races, and many of its winners have been acknowledged as the champion sprinter in Europe.


The event was established in 1876, and the first two runnings were won by Springfield, a colt bred by Queen Victoria at the Hampton Court Stud.

The present system of race grading was introduced in 1971, and the July Cup was initially classed at Group 2 level. It was promoted to Group 1 status in 1978.

The July Cup was part of the Global Sprint Challenge from 2008 to 2017. It was the sixth leg of the series, preceded by the Diamond Jubilee Stakes and followed by the Sprinters Stakes.

The race is currently held on the final day of Newmarket's three-day July Festival meeting.

just out of interest these figures in red is the amount needed to catch Kerry Blue.
as there are only 2 weeks left of the competition i think Kerry could be slightly fav to clinch the title, but history showed Itfc76trev made a late run last time to nick the title.
